Mortimer, detto Morty, non ha le idee chiarissime su quel che vuol fare da grande. Almeno fin quando non diventa l'apprendista di un insolito maestro: la Morte, proprio quella con la falce, in persona. Una volta appurato, con notevole sollievo, di non dover essere necessariamente morto per poter svolgere il lavoro, Morty si appassiona alla nuova «materia», anche se ben presto scoprirà che essere apprendista della Morte non è poi così romantico e affascinante come sembrava... Pericoli e sfide terribili lo attendono, forse troppo grandi anche per lui, il predestinato.

I'm upping the star count to a full five just because I think I liked Mort, the character, even better this time around. DEATH on DISCWORLD. :) Seriously, there's nothing quite like Leggi tutto
This isn't an easy review to write. This has been my first encounter with the Discworld universe and the many writings of Terry Pratchett, and voicing my opinion on it makes me feel like a blundering fool stumbling into a world that was meant for his younger and perhaps wiser self, a world of which
Introducing: DEATH Aw, ain't that smile warming your heart? Or is that the adrenaline rush because you, too, just want to get away from him? Severely misunderstood guy, that fellow. He's a beekeeper, a gardener, cat-lover, admittedly not very good with colours but his shades of black are very original Leggi tutto
The ending surprised me and it was the one that I really wanted to happen. What can I say about Discworld that has never been said before. Nothing, but I need to tell you to read Mort. Mort is a cataclysmic story of epic proportions. I thought Death(the Discworld character) was going to bite dust, yo Leggi tutto
